A few year ago no one heard of Meir Ettinger, the grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane.

Following the Duma arson he was placed in administrative detention for months on end – not because they thought he was involved, and not because of any violence or attacks, but because the Jewish Unit of the Shabak (Israel Security Agency) considered him a threat due to influence his teachings, writings and blogs has over some of the “hilltop youth.”


After 10 months, much of it in solitary confinement, the Shabak released him in June 2016. No charges were ever filed.

Kan-11 interviewed Meir Ettinger (in Hebrew), providing him with a fair, honest and open platform to let the Israeli people see him for who he really is, not how the Shabak and the media have portrayed him.

If you understand Hebrew, this is a very interesting interview with a lot of subtleties and subtexts. Well worth watching.
